under the obama--shrunk under the obama administration. i'm going to ask each of you the same question. who won the debate and will it matter. >> i think joe biden clearly won the debate. you can gauge that by the other side complaining by the style issues and not going to the substance. i think it will be merged in the polling data with whatever happens on tuesday in the presidential. but i think they've started a theme. if the president kind of continues in biden's direction it will merge together, and you'll start to see polling data to support that it was a very good debate for the democrats. >> michael: thomas frank. >> i would say biden won on issue but ryan won on decorum. one thing that biden did that i really liked when he would start on those grand rhetorical flights about the wonders of liberalism and the middle class he tend to wander off but those were inspiring. if barack obama could talk that way, they would have this thing in the bag. >> michael: indeed, they would. i think a lot of people were watching it that way. guys, he had a great time. errol louis and thomas fran

epic collapse, also under the bush administration? did they get prosecuted under the obama administration? the definitive answer is hell no. they didn't get prosecuted so much, president obama couldn't find a single one prosecuted under his watch that he could put in that ad. so what's sad is unfortunately president obama isn't that much better than mitt romney on this issue. i wish he was tough on wall street so that that ad could make a ton of sense. look is mitt romney going to let off wall street even more? of course! of course! he's going to get rid of dodd frank. it's incredibly weak and mitt romney instead of wanting weak regulations wants none. is it right to compare sesame street and wall street? absolutely. it gives you a sense of their priorities. here's what i wish the add focused on. pbs gets $23.2 million from the government. big deal. do you know how much sheldon adelson would get under mitt romney's tax plan? a savings of over $2 billion, 22 million versus $2 billion. that's just one guy. that's the real big bird. now, that's not all. how about bush's tax cu

you put your finger at the largest crisis in the obama administration. he hasn't given an architecture an intellectual framework for the public to grasp on to. which would have justified the stimulus and health care bill. >> right. i think one of the reasons he hasn't done it is he is afraid if he does that it will make him vulnerable. so he tries to stay to the context, this policy for this reason, as opposed to an overarching plan for what it means to create opportunity. >> eliot: ken unfortunately time is running short. should democrats be panicking or is this a overreaction to one bad evening? and then next week the president will turn to normal. >> they are certainly putting a lot of stock into the vice presidential debate do think this greater unsettled atmosphere around the obama campaign and the administration but we always knew this was going to be a tight race some of the lead was going to shrink headed into the debates and into november, so i don't think we have seen quite as major of a shift as some democrats are fearing at that point. >> eliot: tricia last que

israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions could help to bring iran to the negotiating table? i think the sanctions were already pretty tough. >> i think they are. i think it's a punishment strategy more than a persuasion strategy. you know at some point they agree to a compromise position but basically we're hurting them a lot already. if their oil exports are down by half, the currency has declined by half anyway but the regime may not care, and that's the real dilemma. >> jennifer: sure. i really appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to explain the unrest. all right. political junksies coming up we'll tell you why the president will be dancing a jig if the only headache he has to
